Rhythm and number underpin our lives, from the days of the week and the times of the day to the number of letters in the alphabet. But do we ever stop to consider the deeper meaning behind these everyday realities? 

In Uncovering the Secrets of Time and Number, Wolfgang Held offers a fascinating exploration of this question. He explores why there are seven days in a week and how each day resonates with different soul moods in us—for example, why Tuesday is a good day for making mistakes, and why Friday is the day of beauty and creativity. He also explores the qualities of numbers from one to thirty-one, explaining how many things have an inherent number attached to them—one sun, two parents, three meals a day, four seasons... 

The practical insights brought together in this book can help readers to become more conscious of their relationship to time and number, allowing them to organize their lives in a more harmonious way. 

This book was previously published in two volumes as Rhythms of the Week and Other Explorations of Time (2011) and The Quality of Numbers 1 to 31 (2012).
